Very easy to find. Great views of the river and bridge. Plenty of benches to sit or tables for picnic. Was very simply but if you want a quick break this is a great place to stop for a few minutes.

Mosquito Park is nothing more than a small grassy overlook that borders the street in a residential area. If there is no ramp right by the overlook, I'm quite certain one of the nearby driveways could be used to gain access... More
